Principal's Message

At Bishop Druitt College we value every individual in our care and it is our aim to provide the best possible environment in which children can succeed. Our campus has grown from its inception in 1994 to accommodate over 1200 pupils in first-class teaching facilities which are amid beautifully kept grounds.

We are fortunate to have a talented, highly committed teaching and support staff here to ensure the learning environment of our students is the best it can be. Our Anglican foundation provides the fabric with which the tapestry of our students' experiences unfolds. Optimism, tradition, inclusiveness, service, compassion, tolerance, hope and faithfulness are the underpinnings of a Bishop Druitt College education. It is in this context that our students learn.

We seek to prepare our young men and women with the very best preparation for life after Bishop Druitt College. Our departing collegians should be well-rounded individuals who are grounded in the Anglican way of faith, hope and love. We seek to instil in our students a passion for learning that will bring the knowledge and understanding they will need to make a positive contribution to the communities in which they live and work.

The likelihood of achieving this is strengthened by the fact that we offer an academic program that includes breadth and depth, is rigorous, and which can be tailored to individual needs. We encourage high academic standards and have high expectations of personal discipline and motivation from our students. These are the keys to success in life after school.

Our values, centred on the Christian faith, are encouraged in all facets of college life. Our strong pastoral care program, regular worship, community involvement and a commitment to community service, provide each of our students with an avenue for personal growth.

Bishop Druitt College is a vibrant learning community that encourages a three-way partnership between students, parents and the college. The strength of that partnership is reflected in the success of our students.

I would be pleased to welcome you to Bishop Druitt College at any time. We would be delighted to be involved in the education of your child and to foster in her/him the values we value and seek for our departing collegians.

Thank you for considering us as the school for your child.
